Official dates for the 2013 Summer Slaughter tour have finally been announced! The 22-date traveling metal fest is set to kick off in San Francisco on July 19 and end just less than a month later in Denver on Aug. 16.

As previously reported, this year's Summer Slaughter tour features the Dillinger Escape Plan as headliners, with Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, the Ocean, Revocation, Aeon, Rings of Saturn, Thy Art is Murder + more special guests to be announced.

"We can't wait to get back on the road!" raves Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato. "We're launching a US tour in the spring, hitting Europe for some festivals and club shows, and then hitting several more cities with Summer Slaughter all summer long. We are absolutely amped. After being holed up in the studio for such a long time giving birth to 'One of Us is the Killer,' we are all pent up and ready to share material new and old with our supporters doing what we love to do the most. Can't wait to see and either kiss or rip off each and every one of your faces on the road with Summer Slaughter and year round, everywhere."

"It's year seven and I think 2013's line-up is the most exciting and diverse yet," says Summer Slaughter founder Ash Avildsen. "Slaughter has never been a one dimensional experience for fans. This year is a true testament to that as we have an amazing mix of extreme music's influential icons and leaders of the new school. Let the underground unite!"
